I'm looking for generic kinds of categories that people can put themselves in. Not either/ors, necessarily, but demographic kinds of things that are more about who you think you are than who you really are. Some serious, some silly, etc. Can you think of more categories? Help!

Excellent. Is self-deprecating the more self-deprecating version of humility?

extreme borderline-abusive humility.

I'm a goth, a knitter, a dancer and the captain of my cheerleading team... I like having a plan and a set of goals. I'm not socially awkward per se, but I can't do the names/faces thing and I do find masses of people overwhelming at times...

I remember reading that when people were doing the Netflix challenge, people's reactions to Napoleon Dynamite and I Heart Huckabees were really difficult to figure out and sift through. There were a couple of other movies that people either responded to or couldn't figure out, but those were the two biggest question marks.

I do not think anyone would be comfortable being a demographic or a category. I have been placed and labeled my entire life I an do not want to have to check off more than one box saying that I am ME!
